Join the I-LEAD Industry & Research Days THIS SEPTEMBER in The Hague!

This year the international i-LEAD Industry & Research Days will take place from 6 – 8 September at the HSD Campus in The Hague. The overarching security themes of the Industry & Research Days 2022 are Mobile Hijacking, Vehicle Mitigation, Crime Scene Recording & Documentation, Online Investigation and Public Order & Counter-unmanned Aircraft Systems.

Are you a solution provider or researcher for one of these crime areas? If so, we encourage you to apply and contribute to the event!

The i-LEAD (Innovation – Law Enforcement Agencies’ Dialogue) project, coordinated by the National Police of the Netherlands, aims to identify the needs and priorities of police forces to make recommendations on relevant resources that can satisfy those needs and enhance their work capabilities. The Industry & Research Days organized together with Europol , ENLETS , the European Clearing Board and Security Delta (HSD), create an environment conducive to discussions about innovative technology solutions to assist with the known needs and gaps identified during the practitioner workshops. For a detailed overview of the different themes and topics, read the outcomes gathered from a series of Practitioner Workshops .

Many of the technological areas could help support law enforcement in more than one of the selected security themes, with a clear overlap between them. Moreover, due to the demand for innovative solutions, technologies that offer wide coverage and that can integrate with existing systems are very attractive.
